Learning to care for yourself
adds years to your life,
and life to your years.
Wellness Training is a unique but powerful feature of Morning Light Counseling services. Rather than just focusing on problems or dysfunction, the goal is to help you become as strong, resilient, and happy as possible - physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
Your brain and your body are intimately interconnected, and expanding your overall wellness is one of the most powerful things you can do to improve your long-term emotional health.
Some clients seek wellness training as their major counseling goal, increasing their health, productivity, resilience, spirituality, or sense of overall positive purpose.
Others receive wellness training as part of their recovery program, as they work to heal from depression, anxiety, addiction, or other emotional challenges.
Either way, wellness training makes counseling more effective in the short term, and keeps the benefits of counseling active long after your final therapy session.
of 3 fundamental stages:
Step 1: Identify
Step 2: Replace
Step 3: Assimilate
In Step 1, you and your counselor identify your existing strengths, weaknesses, obstacles, goals and objectives. You determine what you want to accomplish, and develop a vision for your positive transformation and growth.
In Step 2, you and your counselor map out a clear plan of action, to guide you in your daily progression toward achieving your goals. You emerge with a practical set of small but powerful actions to carry out day by day.
In Step 3, you put into motion the plan created in Step 2. Your counselor assigns you homework to carry out between sessions, moving you step by step toward the completion of your desired objectives.
Through these 3 steps, you increase your strength, vitality, and joy in life. Your counselor provides guidance, encouragement, and support, as you choose powerful daily actions to create and maintain your wellness over time.
